Mel Gibson: Too Many Oksanas!
Throw another Oksana into the great Mel Gibson Supposed Mistress Sweepstakes.
First Gibson, whose wife filed for divorce last week, was linked in the press to Russian pianist and composer Oksana Kolesnikova. The only problem being, Kolesnikova has been happily married for a decade and quickly professed that she has "nothing to do with" the Mad Max actor.
Stepping in to fill the void was 24-year-old Russian singer Oksana Pochepa, who claimed in the British press this week that she and Gibson have a "serious" relationship and that she hopes "that our union will be real and strong and long-lasting."
And now People magazine has unearthed yet another Oksana with supposed romantic links to Gibson.
The magazine reports that Russian singer Oksana Grigorieva—who currently lives in the Los Angeles area—may be Mel Gibson's mystery lover, if indeed he has one at all.
People cites public records suggesting that Grigorieva, 39, has lived in a Sherman Oaks, California, home with an ownership trust that's administered by the CFO of Gibson's production company, Icon.
She is also reportedly signed to Gibson's record label, Icon Records. (Who knew he has a record label?)
Sources suggest to People that Gibson may have even taken Grigorieva on a family vacation in Costa Rica.
If the allegations are true, this wouldn't be Grigorieva's first romantic entanglement with a famous actor; she dated James Bond actor Timothy Dalton, with whom she has a son, Alexander.
Whew; if this keeps up much longer, we're going to need a spreadsheet to keep track of all the Oksanas that Gibson is supposedly dating.
